aligned himself with those delegate!
who favor a thorough discussion of
all practical problems of Irrigation.
While President Fowler in his ad
dress did not intimate knowledge of
any attempt to Inject personal ques

this congress is and must remain the
national forum for consideration of ir
rigation matters. He reviewed at
length the achievements of the con-
grfss in its almost twenty years of ex
istence, both in securing beneficial leg
islation In congress and in furthering
the construction of irrigation projects
In the west. Recognizing that the con
gress Is confronted by many import
ant problems for further consideration,
President Fowler in closing declared:
"This congress must watch over and
continue to contribute to the develop

kindred subject of national drainage

Former Governor Alva Adams, In
discussing "Colorado: Conquest and

favor of state control of irrigation

resources close to the people. This, he
said, would "insure tranquillity, pro
mote the dignity of the states, harm
no one, strengthen the nfttion and ad

Thousands of delegates and local
people packed the Mineral palace to
hear William J. Bryan discuss "Irri

night. Emphasizing the importance of
irrigation. Mr. Bryan said, in part:

SAN DIEGO WARMS
TO THEODORE BELL
Democratic Candidates Open the
Southernmost Rally with
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 26.—The Demo
crats of San Diego had their first rally
of the ' campaign < this evening, . when
they filled Germania hall and wildly
applauded a long speech by Theodore
Bell and a very brief one by Timothy
Spellacy. . • .
E. E. Capps presided and promptly
presented Mr. Bell. ■
At the outset Bell spoke of the great
future that California will have
through the opening of the Panama
canal. < ■„■ ,; ■.. ,'- ,-;
"The Democratic doctrine ;of equal
rights to all and special privileges to
none," he said, "If steadily adhered to
in this state ■will mean industrial
progress never witnessed before."
Coming to the question of the South
ern Pacific railroad lln politics, ■ he
suggested that it is customary to put
new converts on probation, • and that
four years would be a proper proba
tionary term-for Republicans who had
concluded to ; break away from rail
way domination. He continued:
"The political supremacy of the
Southern Pacific is not the product of
a few days or a few months. It' runs
back many years through the history
of California. This pernicious Influ
ence has been exorcised through the
medium of the Republican party.
Time and time again the Democratic
party has taken an absolute and une
quivocal , position against- its domina
tion in our affairs, but year after year
the people by a majority vote for Re
publican nominees have suffered this
great political evil to continue."
Mr. Bell asserted that he had fought
the Southern Pacific four years ago
and was still fighting it.
11 As to the immigration question, Mr.
Bell said: "I am opposed to • Asiatic
immigration, whether It be Chinese,
Japanese, Hindu or any other Oriental
people, and I shall not hesitate to use
the lawful powers of the state to pre
vent their encroachment upon , the
state." i / r
The speaker devoted some time to
education In California.
"If elected governor," he said, "I
shall overhaul our entire school sys
tem, and where modifications and
changes can be made to Improve Its
value I shall not hesitate to do all that
lies In my power."

American Dentist Found Guilty in
Court at London
LONDON, Sept. 26.—The coroner's
Jury, after one hour's deliberation to
day, brought in the verdict that Mrs.
Cora Crippen, known on the stage as
Belle Elmore, had been willfully mur
dered by her husband, Dr. Hawley H.
Crippen, an American dentist.
After listening to the testimony for
several days and hearing the summing
up of the case by Coroner Schroeder,
the jury was left but little choice.
The inquest had been dragged out
longer than usual In order to giva the
police time for evidence. They ex
pected to bring out at the trial testi
mony tending to identify Belle Elmore'a
body, through the agency of a piece of
flesh found to contain a scar.
The case will come up for trial at the

MAID OF MANALAY
Tuneful Opera Produced by Bank
Clerks and Friends Wins
GRACEFUL DANCERS APPEAR
Melodies of the Humming Variety
Promise to Continue in
Memory of Hearers
BY I-I,OKENCB BOSARD LAWRENCE
Los Angeles was presented to "The
Maid of Manalay" last night at the
Auditorium theater, and the introduc
tion seemed a happy one. Certainly
Los Angeles was pleased—of that there
was no doubt. Flowers by the bushels,
applause, huzzas and bravos testified
to the admiration of the audience. And
the maid? She offered her sweetest
songs, her brightest smiles and most
alluring dances in evpression of her en
joyment of the situation.
This opera, the second we have heard
from the pen of Harry Olrard, received
a production last night at the hands
of tho bank clerks and their friends
which will establish an entirely new
standard for local amateur dramatic
work. No such home talent work has
been heard on a local stage before, so
far as solos 'and ensemble singing,
dancing and marching may be con
sidered. A large chorus, alive and very
much awake every minute, a well
trained orchestra and a great number
of voices which are actually musical
is an excellent instrument upon which
a capable director may play, and
under the baton of Harry Girard, coim
poser and producer of the opera, last
night's premiere was astonishingly suc
MELODY IN CnORUSKS
Musically, the opera Is more am
bitious than was "The Alaskan." It
has fewer tunns of the popular sort,
but many of the choruses and both
finales are beautifully harmonized and
orchestrated. A number of the solos
will prove to be of the "humming"
variety. The book, too, is replete with
good lines and kept the audience
amused, if not actually hilarious
throughout the evening.
In the cast last night were several
singers who made their first public ap
pearance. Of these a notable success
was attained by Fred McPherson in
the tenor role of Dteut. Ney Val Flagg.
This young man sang and acted his
part In excellent style. His voice,
which is high and clear In quality,
earned him several encores and the en
thusiastic applause not only of his
friends but of every appreciative lis
tener In the house.
Edith Salyer as Hua, a native wine
seller, displayed grace and charm in
the dance which opened the opera, and
formed a picturesque addition to every
Miss Hazel Runge, while a stranger
to the footlights in Just this particular
sphere, has yet had so much concert
experience that her undoubted success
as the fascinating Widow Tarbox was
only to be expected. Gifted with a
spirited manner, admirable stage pres
ence and a voice already excellent and
constantly growing and developing to
fuller beauty, this young woman may,
If she so aspires, hope to attain to" con
siderable heights in the operatic world.
CAPTIVATING SAILOB BOY
Agnes Cain Brown Girard Is already
well known to theatergoers here, but
rarely before has she had a part In
which she was so delightful. Her petite
figure was most captivating in the na
tive costume and as the Insouciant sai
lor boy she was Irresistible. Her songs,
"The Maid of Manalay" and "Aloha
Oe," as well as later numbers, were
given with the utmost vocal art In
which her beautiful voice appeared to

NO MORE LIQUOR PERMITS

nounced the policy that it wl' grant

established by refusing to grant a

SAYS WATER TRAFFIC
OPPOSED BY RAILROADS
WASHINGTON, Sept." 26.— "Probably
the greaest single deterrent water ter
minal advance In the United States 13
the present adverse attitude of rail
lines toward independent water traf
fic, in' their exclusive control of front
age, in refusal or neglect to co-ordin
ate with general water traffic and in
refusal to pro-rate generally with water
lines in through movement of traffic."
This is one of the conclusions of Her-
Bert Knox Smith, commisisoner of cor
porations, just made public, of his re
port to the president on water trans
portation in the United States. After
an exhaustive inquiry into the harbor
situation of the country and an anal
ysis of conditions, Commissioner Smith
deals In this section of the report with
water terminals and he finds five sa
lient facts regarding them.
That terminals are as Important as
channels: that the harbors of the coun
try have not fully developed their ter
minal frontage nor are they properly
organized or controlled; that railroads
largely control water terminals, often
to the disadvantage of general water
traffic- that there is almost no linking
up of the rail and general water sys
tems at the water's edge, but rather the
opposite tendency, and that there is
little co-operation by localities with the
federal government which improves
Lack of co-operation between locali
ties and the federal government In wa
ter terminal development, he says, is in
marked contrast to those continental
countries whose waterways have been
most highly developed.
